    Icefishing Tips: Find Overlooked Spots for Mid-Winter Panfish -1


    As crowds gather in well-known community holes on local lakes, those in the know resort to off-the-beaten path spots for super-sized panfish. Finding honey holes full of large pan fish is not as difficult as some may think. Here's how.
    1. Go Mobile. Resist the urge to fish community holes on large lakes. Instead, fire up your snowmobile or ATV and head for smaller, less frequented lakes and ponds.

    Flounder Migration on in Texas, But Overall Numbers on the Decline-0


    It's that time of year again. As cold fronts become more and more frequent, mother nature signals flounder to begin their annual migration. In Texas, the natives call it "the flounder run."

    As the hardest cold fronts hit, flounder congregate around the passes, staging until they head offshore to the Gulf of Mexico to breed. Recent scientific research has shown flounder stocks have declined slightly since the 1970's.

    Hurricane Sandy Aftermath: State of Fishing in Montauk, New York-0


    Saltwater anglers near Montauk won’t have to worry too much about having their fishing opportunities hampered by Hurricane Sandy. They weathered the brunt of the storm with flooding, but minimal devastation.

    “Along the oceanside in the Montauk area we received a lot of beach erosion, but no real ‘shut down the operation’ type of damage,” stated Paulie Apostolides, Paulie’s Bait and Tackle, Montauk. “The people that got hit the hardest around here were the businesses and marinas on the North End, West End, and Lake Montauk area, where the canals and bays flooded heavily, but everybody reopened pretty quickly.”

    Fly Fish for Bass with the Temple Fork Outfitters Hawgleg-0


    Most fly rods are not designed to target specific species. They're built to a length and line weight spec. These are considered "generalist rods" and it's up to the fishermen to determine what fish species a rod is best suited for. For instance, just about any freshwater trout guide will agree a 9-foot 5-weight is the most versatile trout rod in the world. However, understand the rod was not built as a "trout rod."

    Potential World Record Yellowfin Tuna Caught Off Mexico-0


    John Petruescu was fishing at Hurricane Bank off Mexico, aboard the Excel out of San Diego, earlier this week when he hooked into what may go down in the books as the largest yellowfin tuna ever caught on rod and reel. The leviathan of many a sushi dream, caught on a live skipjack tuna, was so large it required five gaffs to steer it into the tuna gate—which was almost too small to accommodate the monster fish.

    While the crew estimated the fish’s weight at around 400 pounds by utilizing the tried and true at-sea estimate method of taping out, outdoor writer Pete Thomas exclaims on his blog that the fish is much larger and that it will be officially weighed when it returns to San Diego late Saturday or early Sunday.
